The Library has a limited number of passes for each participating organization, and these are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to Ella Johnson Library cardholders.  Passes must be checked out in person, and cannot be reserved or checked out online or on the phone.

You must present your printed pass along with your library card at the participating museum.
One Museum Adventure Pass may be checked out per family, per loan period. The loan period is seven days, and will expire after the date printed on the pass.
